7. What does this have to do with gender?

I have tremendous respect for Mayer's technical skills, accomplishments, and brilliant innovations. She holds several patents. I was rooting for her to succeed when she started at Yahoo and hoped she would turn it around. But she was not a very good CEO and Yahoo did not do well under her leadership.

It's also a very different sort of company now. The investment in Alibaba is worth more than the company's own businesses. McInerney has decades more experience in finance and investment management. Altaba is more investment company than tech company.

There is a hell of a lot of sexism and discrimination in the business/tech world but this isn't it.
